Amendments are being made to the 2018 civil contract to increase the number of payments on account applications that can be submitted.
Providers can now submit a maximum of 4 applications instead of 2 within any 12-month period. This change to the contract came into force on 13 July 2020.
We have made changes to the Client and Cost Management System (CCMS) to support this amendment.
The updated versions of the specification (general provisions 1-6) for the 2018 civil contract and 2018 civil contract (education and discrimination) are now available on GOV.UK.
